What is a doula?
As your doula, we provide you and your partner with informational, emotional, and physical support during your pregnancy and childbirth. There are many outlooks or ideals on what a doula’s childbirth philosophy is. Our feeling is that this is YOUR birth. It’s our goal to help you achieve the birth you want by listening to your concerns and catering care and support to what will best help you achieve it.
Why should you consider hiring a birth doula?
The presence of a doula at birth has been proven to decrease the need for pain medicine during labor, decreases the occurrences of cesarean delivery, improve the parents’ overall feelings about their birth experience, and so much more. The support each mother needs will be different so the support provided is always unique to you.
We know that how women experience their birth has such a rippling impact on our world and if we can help improve our world by serving women during birth, we’re all in! While every client’s care is customized some things will not change.

This meeting allows us to get to know each other and discover exactly how we can best support you. Every mother is different so her needs during birth and the care provided will be different for each mother as well. We will also thoroughly review the package options, our agreement, and answer any remaining questions you may have.
Let’s get to know each other more and plan exactly how we can best support you through this pregnancy and birth. We’ll have a detailed Birth Plan Consultation, discuss Early Labor Comfort Measures, and establish a way to Stay Connected throughout your pregnancy, labor and birth. Visits typically takes place between 30 – 38 weeks.
We go “on-call” 2 weeks prior to your estimated due date and we’ll be available to be with you as active labor begins. We only accept a few doula clients per month, to ensure specialty care and practically eliminate the chances of us missing your birth.
Continuous Labor And Birth Support
Your trained doula will join you at the birth space you’ve chosen as active labor begins. She will stay with you to support you and your birth partner throughout the labor and birthing process offering a variety of pain management and emotional support tools.
We will stay with you for a while after your baby is born to be sure you are settled in to your new role and to help you with first latch if needed. Your doula will also plan to visit you during your first couple weeks postpartum to check in on you and your new family. These visits are the best!
